“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”
Genesis 1:1

Dear Via Family,

Happy New Year! This weekend we will say goodbye to 2016 and welcome a new year. May our hearts reflect on the goodness of God and His faithfulness. May we also look ahead and anticipate His plans for us in 2017 and humbly ask for His grace to meet the demands and seize the opportunities that we will meet.  

I am so excited about Via Church and what God will do in 2017!

Please make sure you are aware of these things:


This Weekend
This Sunday morning we will worship at our regular times with all kid’s and youth ministries happening as usual. Let’s celebrate Jesus during the first few waking hours of a new year. Please note that at 6PM only our youth will gather - our evening kid’s ministries will resume next Sunday, January 8.


Christmas Eve Recap
Nearly 1000 people worshiped with us at one of our Christmas eve services. It was a fantastic day. I loved meeting many of your family members and friends. The gospel of Jesus was sung, spoken, read, and proclaimed. We appreciate the many volunteers that served!


Year-end Giving
Your generosity to Via Church changes lives. As we head into the first year of Hope Initiative, we are doing so with big and bold faith that God will take our efforts and impact our church, city, and the world.

As a reminder, all gifts received in our office, postmarked or made online (Give to Via Church) by December 31, 2016 will apply toward this year’s taxes.

On behalf of our family and the entire Via Church staff, we wish you a Happy New Year!

It’s all about Jesus,
Rick
